Eighteenth-century Virginians were passionate about their pineapples. The Virginia Gazette regularly announced the arrival of ships from the West Indies bearing the tropical fruit. It was a favorite of George Washington, who once wrote that while the pear was “generally most admired…none pleases my taste as do’s the Pine.”
The likeness of pineapples appeared in artistic impressions and architecture. It decorated the door above William Byrd’s James River plantation and Lord Dunmore, the last colonial governor of Virginia, was so enamored with the fruit’s shape and spikey leaves that he constructed a 37-foot tall pineapple on the roof of his Scottish estate near Airth.
